A little girl gets up in the middle of the night to sneak an orange fizzie drink, and this act saves her from a brutal death, but it doesn’t save her from witnessing the ruthless death of her family. Eve is on the case to find out who committed these horrendous acts, and at the same time, she is protecting this little girl from falling into the hands of these butchers.

To date there are 43 books in the In Death series, with one more expected to be released in September of 2012.  These books are crime drama, suspense and romance because they focus on the case Eve is currently working on as well as her and Roake’s personal relationship. This is a futuristic suspense that takes place in 2059 in New York City. The books are told in a third person narrative that focuses primarily on Lieutenant Eve Dallas, but at times the story is also told through some of the other characters including the murderer. They are written by Nora Roberts under the pseudonym of J. D. Robb.

The story was well told, starting out from the point of view of the little girl who ends up witnessing the murder of her family.  Then it follows Eve as she tracks down the who and the why of these killings. There was a little bit of suspense, particularly in the end. I always enjoy reading about Eve; I like her character and I enjoy how she interacts with the people around her.

If you enjoy reading In Death books, then Survivor in Death will not disappoint. It was the usual Eve Dallas story and I recommend it as a good read.
